Healthy Popcorn Recipe


Author: Dee McCaffrey, CDC
Description: Healthy and tasty way to have popcorn for your next party or movie date.
1/2-cup organic popcorn kernels 1-2 Tbsp. Extra Virgin Coconut Oil dash of sea salt



1. Cover the bottom of a medium stockpot with coconut oil. Place the pot on the stovetop (without the lid) over medium heat.

2. Add one popcorn kernel to the oil and allow it to "pop".

3. Once the kernel has popped, add the rest of the corn kernels, stir to coat them with the oil, and then place the lid on the pot.

4. Within a minute or two, the corn will begin popping into popcorn. Shake the pot over the heat to prevent burning. When the popping starts to taper off, take the pot off of the heat and turn the burner off.

5. Quickly transfer the popcorn to a large bowl or paper grocery bag and season with a dash of sea salt. If desired, add some omega-3's by drizzling with flax seed oil.



Great anytime!
